After all of the wedding pandemonium, I finally have had time to quilt again. Yea! I am about 4 or 5 blocks behind. Today I finished two. This one is called Pieces of Friendship. It was very quick and easy.
I alway feel so good when I trim the block and it comes to a beautifully straight and perfect 6.5″ square. I just love to look at it sitting all neat and pretty with the others in the 6.5″ square napkin holder I have had for a long time. Isn’t it a sweet day when you can find a new purpose for an ordinary object around the house?
The next block I made is called “Lina’s Gift”. This one also was not too tricky. The hardest thing about this block was the half square triangles.
The directions were easy peasey though, and I was able to use my Quilt in a Day square up ruler to make the task even easier:)
You just place the line marked with the size of square you want on the stitched seam and trim up and down with the rotary cutter. You end up with a beautiful finished square when you are done:)
It has definitely been SWEET joining all the wonderful quilters from around the world as we make this sampler. You can check it here.
